There is? I only see "Classified Ads" (in the section "Collecting & Using"), which I wouldn't call a forum. I was looking for a place to discuss my simulations, get suggestions, ideas for improvement and so on.

Quote:Do you see any ads around here? This is far off the mark, and likely to evoke a strong response.
There's a smiley after my remark on purpose... Actually, the ads for MoHPC are on my website. And they're free. Smile

Quote:This is legitimate in my opinion. You could probably do better by posting an ad, complete with app store links, to the commercial forum. If all you want to do is to promote your apps, then leave it at that. Otherwise, participate in general discussions with your fellow enthusiasts. Mention your apps when they are on-topic, but be aware there is sensitivity around here about commercial promotion. Monitor the forums for questions regarding your apps, and answer them appropriately. This is how to care for your customers in the digital age. If you are enthusiastic about what your customers are enthusiastic about, then that's perfect. Smile
If you're referring to Classified Ads, linking is a no-no: "This forum is not meant as additional advertising for sales on other websites. Do not link to or refer to auction sites such as ebay from this forum."
Up to now, any discussions about my apps got completely drowned in HP Prime discussions. So I still think this forum is the perfect place.

I'm not. Call me a fan and a hobbyist. In view of the few bucks I make, I'd be a lousy entrepreneur.
